6. Many threatened species are K-based organisms. Gives two reasons why these species may be more fragile than others. Explain your reasons.
7. Give examples of technological innovations that have allowed humans to increase K, the limiting capacity of the environment.
6. Threatened species have specialization in diet, living conditions and low reproduction. Threatened species do little to change the carrying capacity of their environments. Therefore, this decreases their habitat without any possibility of its expansion.
7. Agriculture, technologies allowing people to inhabit new places (heating, air conditioning).
